Samuel Bradley earned his lifelong nickname "Slam" on the harsh streets when at the age of 12 he challenged a local bully who was five years his senior and outweighed him by 50 pounds. Slam knocked him out with one punch, and hasn't stopped swinging since.
After brief military and police careers he became a vagabond private investigator - mostly because he could not stand to take orders, but also because of a strong sense of justice.
